Question about monorail resorts vs villas

Thinking about changing reservations to a monorail resort. We currently have a 2 bedroom villa booked at OKW. We have 2 young kids and my brother and parents will be with us too. That is a total of 7, so we thought it would be fun to have the 2 bedroom villa and stay together. However, the more I think about it, the more I would really rather have a little more theme for our boys since it will be their first time, and also be closer to the action. I was thinking about the Poly since it is a great theme and also has the monorail (which I am sure would be very handy with the kids and for my Mom who had knee surgery in Oct). However, it is so much more money. It will add about $1200 for us. Plus, then all of us can't stay together (since adjoining rooms aren't guaranteed). Is $1200 really worth it? My pocketbook says, "NO WAY!", but my heart says, "DO IT!!" I am a person who loves nice hotels/resorts. My husband would be fine with a Value, but I am more snobby than he is! hehehe The other monorail resorts look beautiful too, but not as themed. I'm so torn. Any thoughts?
